However, Xu Que’s hand had hardly reached the brass bell when he was stopped by the sound of a tinkling bell from the room opposite his.
After that, a female voice echoed from that room.
“I make a bid of thirty million Spirit Stones!”
Again, everyone was surprised!
Today’s auction is way too formidable. Many participants are so wealthy!
Someone even made a bid of thirty million for a six-star pill, which is valued at only twenty million!
“It seems the big shots in those two private rooms are at a critical stage of the Infant Transformation Stage; so they need this pill to make a breakthrough!”
“It must be so! The Great Clarity Green Water Pill is very rare, but it is so effective in breaking the bottleneck in cultivation. If one really needs this pill, it would be worthwhile to spend forty or fifty million Spirit Stones on it.”
“It is said that the highest auction price ever for the Great Clarity Green Water Pill was eighty million Spirit Stones. I wonder whether this record will be broken today.”
“Definitely. Just now that Wang Sicong said that he would buy all the auction items. Now there are only three auction items left!”
“Hehe, these three items are the grand finale, it’s possible he won’t be able to afford all of them.”
“Right. He hasn’t stated a price yet for this one. Could it be that he has spent all of his Spirit Stones?”
“Haha, that is highly possible. After all, he has spent a lot of Spirit Stones already.”
“Finally, we don’t need to watch him show off his prosperity!”
Many people started to gloat over Xu Que’s situation. They looked at the second floor with faces full of scorn. They thought that Xu Que didn’t have enough Spirit Stones for further bidding.
In the other private room on the second floor, the one beside Xu Que’s room, an old man snorted coldly with furrowed brows. “Humph, how dare a girl so young be so defiant… how dare she compete with me for the Great Clarity Green Water Pill!”
He knocked at the brass bell and shouted loudly, “Forty million!”
The hall was in an uproar. After three rounds of bidding, the price of the Great Clarity Green Water Pill had been raised to forty million; and this was only the competition between two people!
Moreover, the high price had prevented most people in the hall from participating in the bidding. Only holders of the jade invitation cards on the second floor would be able to participate in the following bidding war.
Now the price had been raised to forty million by the competing pair. If other big shots also participated in the competition, could the record be broken? And was it possible for the price to exceed one hundred million?
Many people were full of expectation, looking at the private rooms on the second floor excitedly.
Finally, another bell tinkled, from the room of the lady opposite Xu Que.
“Fifty million!” the lady said coldly as she stared at the old man in the room next to Xu Que’s.
However, the old man didn’t give up. He knocked the brass bell and shouted, “Sixty million!”
Apparently, the old man was determined to get the Great Clarity Green Water Pill.
He had been stuck at level 6 of the Infant Transformation Stage for a long time. Because of his advanced age, it was very difficult for him to break the bottleneck. Therefore, this Great Clarity Green Water Pill was his hope. As long as he could make a breakthrough to level 7 of the Infant Transformation Stage, he would be able to increase his power and longevity.
Hearing the old man’s bid of sixty million, the lady opposite Xu Que didn’t say a word for a long time. Her face was quite gloomy. With furrowed brows, it seemed that she was unsure whether she should keep increasing the price.
Compared to the old man, she did not seem as determined to get this pill.
“Sixty million, calling once!” cried the lady in the court dress, wearing a faint smile.
Everyone was surprised slightly, for none of them had expected the competition over this pill to finish up so fast, like the whip of a tiger’s head or the lash of a snake’s tail.
“It seems like the woman on the second floor has given up.”
“Alas, the price has been raised to sixty million after all. No one would state a price like this readily, unless they had already been driven into a tight corner.”
“I suppose the old man will keep increasing the price even when the price reaches one hundred million!”
“Wait! Where is Wang Sicong? Why did he stop stating prices?”
“Hahaha, he has run out of Spirit Stones, as expected!”
“As I said before, he is not wealthy enough! How could he buy all the auction items?”
Everyone shook their heads and took delight in talking about Xu Que.
“Sixty million, calling twice!”
At this moment, the lady in court dress spoke again. She looked around and it seemed like she was searching for other potential bidders, or encouraging people who would be willing to state a higher price.
The old man, who was in the room next to Xu Que’s room, felt greatly relieved. He knew that Great Clarity Green Water Pill was about to be his.
“Hehe, when I get the pill, I will break the bottleneck and reach level 7 of the Infant Transformation Stage. At that time, I will take these sixty million Spirit Stones back from the people of the Water Nation, sing the same old way!” the old man said to himself with a sneer. Full of confidence, he picked up a cup of tea and took a sip.
“Sixty million, last ca…”
When the lady in the court dress picked up the wooden hammer, about to make the last call, the clear tinkle of brass bell went off!
The lady in court dress stopped, dropping the hammer immediately.
Everyone was stunned. The ringing of the bell had come from Xu Que’s room!
To everyone’s surprise, he stood up and walked to the stand with his hands behind his back. Then in a deep voice with a faint smile, he said, “I, Wang Sicong, make a bid of one billion!”
All at once, everyone was dumbfounded and couldn’t believe what they had heard.
Holy shit! Is he insane?
He can state a price of one billion for one Great Clarity Green Water Pill?
Hearing Xu Que’s bidding, the old man, who was in the room next to Xu Que’s room, spat out the tea in his mouth.
Damn! Are you deliberately finding fault?
What the hell is wrong with your head?
Bang! The old man was so angry that he smashed the table with his hand. Then he shouted at Xu Que angrily, “How dare you? Little brat, who the hell are you?”
Everyone could sense the power and anger of the old man.
Meanwhile, many people started to gloat over Xu Que.
Now Xu Que had just reached level 10 of the Original Infant Stage. By provoking the old man who had reached level 6 of the Infant Transformation Stage, he was asking to get killed.
“That little brat is doomed!”
“Hehe, I don’t think the old man will take action in the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce now. However, it is highly possible that he will outside this building…”
“Besides the old man, I’m guessing this little brat has been targeted by many people. He is way too arrogant.”
“People like him will not live long.”
Many people were whispering.
As one of the staff of the Tian Liu Chamber of Commerce, the lady in the court dress walked over in a hurry. She said to the man, “Predecessor, please calm down. In an auction, the highest bidder always wins.”
However, Xu Que was quite calm. He walked to the wall of his private room and asked through the wall, “Old fellow, what did you say just now?”
With chilly eyes and a gloomy face, the old man spoke through gritted teeth. “Tell me, who the hell are you? And why are you against me?”
Everyone’s eyes fixed on Xu Que, for they were also curious about his identity. After all, the name of Wang Sicong had never been heard of before.
At that moment, with a mean smile, Xu Que spoke through the wall. “I am Mr. Wang, your next-door neighbour.”
